Evolv Integrates Weapons Detection With Video & Mass Notification
Evolv Express is said to be the first system to integrate weapons screening and detection data collected at venue entrances with Milestone VMS and Titan HST mass notification system.
WALTHAM, Mass. — Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), a provider of weapons detection security screening, announces enhancements to its Evolv Express solution.
Evolv Express is now the first system to integrate weapons screening and detection data collected at venue entrances with Milestone Video Management System (VMS) and Titan HST mass notification system, according to the company.
This is said to further Evolv Express’ screening intelligence to complementary security technologies, simplifying and improving management for a venue’s security professionals. The new integrations are in addition to Evolv’s existing integration with Motorola Solutions announced in 2021.
Evolv says the enhancements to Evolv Express address the legacy, antiquated approach to physical security and enable security teams to meet today’s threats. Through these new integrations, information about Evolv Express-identified threats — including time, location, image data, type of threat and staff requests for additional support — can be instantly communicated to complementary security technologies via the Milestone and Titan HST VMS systems and protocols that a venue may already have in place.
“Before these integrations, security guards at venue entry points had very few tools to communicate — quickly and at a mass scale — about a threat. Now, if a guard at one gate identifies a threat, they can immediately inform the full security team. In elevated situations, every minute counts,” says Peter George, CEO of Evolv Technology. “Until today, collecting reliable weapons data at venue entrances has been exceedingly difficult, which has forced security teams to find other, non-automated ways, and hampers their ability to mitigate risks quickly. Our powerful integrations enable venues to improve their security and for visitors to confidently and safely enjoy their venue experience.”
The enhancements also include advanced video analytics that are said to further improve and automate the identification and resolution of who presents a potential threat, and where on a person’s body the threat is located.
By optimizing and automating threat isolation, high-turnover security guard staff can be more effective, accelerate detection and resolution of the threat, and maintain a seamless and frictionless experience for guests moving through the entryway, according to the company.
“Our research demonstrates Americans want to feel and be safe, but currently do not. All venues where people gather have the opportunity to help their guests feel confident they are safe, while not impacting the overall guest experience. Venues can do this while transforming their digital infrastructure to align with 21st century technology, innovations and expectations,” George adds.
